This concert was originally released on a Box Set many years ago. The sound then was very thin and had several drop-outs. MRS have remastered the original and it is light years better now with clearer, fuller sound and no drop-outs. This was the last concert by what may be termed 'The 50's Style Elvis' - lots of screaming girls and hysteria. However, Elvis is in fine voice and sings many of his greatest hits and some rarities. The 100 page book accompanying this outstanding release is worthy of the album price alone documenting the reason why Elvis was undertaking this concert - 'Funding of the Arizona Memorial' a lasting memorial to those gallant sailors who lost their lives on that tragic day near the end of the last world war. Many great photographs of Elvis on stage and there is also bonus material in the form of actual radio broadcasts from the time.

Everyone concerned with the Concert - even Elvis himself - paid for a ticket and this helped to raise enough funds to complete the Memorial.

It is a tragedy that SONY have seen fit not to give this album a general release as I feel that everyone should have the opportunity to hear this concert and it should be put on sale at the Arizona Memorial Gift Shop as well as at the various armed forces sites. If given TV exposure, particularly in the U.S.A., then I feel this album would become a real chart contender.

In any case, well done MRS.

The question many fans will be asking will be have MRS improved the sound quality over what we previously had from RCA/BMG? the answer is a resounding "yes"...with the only reservation being that by their own admittance this was a poorly recorded show . But it is obvious that they have worked on the original tape to provide something that is certainly more listenable if not exactly hi-fi! The sound has more depth and a nip and tuck here and there has repaired some of the drop outs present previously with only a slight hic-up on Its Now or Never being the most obvious blip. It is probably more akin now to the sound quality of The Beatles in Hamburg tapes but ranks alongside those and the Million Dollar Quartet tape in terms of historic importance in my opinion.

But hey we are lucky to have this and its great that at last this seminal show is finally available at a reasonable cost as a stand alone CD and not part of a pricey box set. Its always amazed me that there appears never to have been a serious attempt to capture on record the live excitement of a Presley show when he was in the first flush of fame and apart from some radio and tv appearances and a few tapes from 1956 theres are precious few examples. Criminally so far nothing has surfaced from 57 or the other post army shows in Memphis so this is all we have and its simply fantastic with El in great voice belting out hits old and new at that time. Its brilliant to hear One Night, Fools Such As I, Its Now or Never, Are You Lonesome, Such A Night et al with his voice at the early 60's peak. Plus more mature readings of earlier fare like Thats All Right and Hound Dog.

It is no doubt one of the greatest Presley concert recordings in existence. MRS has used the same engineer who worked on their recent `Hayride' release and now this remastered concert shows a marvellous jump in audio-quality. Of course the recording was pretty basic in the first place - but now the audio sounds much, much richer plus all those old extremely annoying level fluctuations and tape dropouts have been fixed.

For me it is the powerhouse blues 'Reconsider Baby' (one of Elvis' favourites) that is the standout with an astounding Boots Randolph blowing up a storm. Elvis shouts, "One more time, one more time, one more time" as the crowd shriek in appreciation.

`One Night' is similarly a stunner. Interestingly Elvis includes some lines from `One Night Of Sin' .. "Don't call my name, it makes me feel so ashamed" .. "The things we planned, would make the earth stand still"!
`Such A Night' is one of my all-time favourite songs and while this is no doubt the best live version, Elvis still messes up the timing and middle-break although all is forgiven by the rocking ending.
Let's face it the whole concert is brilliant. Elvis for a change sings a very sincere 'Love Me' (Elvis' best ever live performance including a lovely Scotty Moore guitar solo) and a stunningly fresh 'That's All Right' (he had pretty well dropped this from his set list since 1956) while 'Swing Down, Sweet Chariot' highlights his recent 'His Hand In Mine' gospel album.

The CD is accompanied by a stylish 100-page hardback book that contains many rare photographs. The concert itself is featured across thirty pages and includes 22 photos as well as some press cuttings.
All the shots of Elvis on stage in his gold lame jacket are great to look at while listening to the CD.

Probably like most lifelong Elvis fans, I already have this from one of in one of it's previously released versions.

The dropouts have been eliminated as suggested in the other reviews, but the general sound quality from this unofficial recording is not that significantly improved. However as there were several dropouts previously, the improvemnt is certainly worthwhile.

What I haven't heard before is the radio broadcast, from the Sunday prior to the concert, containing the selection of classic gospel recordings from the "Peace In The Valley" EP and "His Hand In Mine" album which extend the historical appeal of this album.

It's Elvis, it's a great piece of Rock 'n' Roll history, if only it was a professional recording, or better still had been televised.
